Seeking Public Comment on the City of Glendale's Draft Stormwater Management Plan.

The city of Glendale is updating the Stormwater Management Plan, which outlines what the city is doing to prevent stormwater pollutants from contaminating waterways. This plan is required to comply with the Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (AZPDES) regulations. 

There are two ways to provide input to the City about the plan:

1) Review the City's Draft Stormwater Management Plan:
  • Send comments and questions via Email
  • Complete a Survey
2) Attend the first Annual Stormwater Management Plan Workshop at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at Council Chambers (5850 W. Glendale Ave.), which will be broadcast through Facebook Live.
